Neighborhood Street Fund Transportation Projects for Your Neighborhood
Do you have an idea for a transportation project in your community?
The Neighborhood Street Fund (NSF) program pays for transportation projects identified and prioritized by the community. Projects range from crossing improvements to creating unique public spaces. Learn about past projects.
What kinds of projects can be submitted?
Projects qualify if they meet the following criteria:
Projects that change the number of lanes on a roadway or propose a change to traffic control (stop signs or traffic signals) must also be evaluated by SDOT for feasibility.
Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page for more details about the application process. SDOT staff will be attending District Council meetings in March to discuss the program. We encourage potential applicants to attend one of these meetings and to work with members of their District Council to develop their proposals. Once we confirm these and additional meetings, we’ll add them to our Upcoming Meetings page.
How are projects funded?
The levy includes $24M to continue the Neighborhood Street Fund program over the next 9 years. Before 2016, funds for this program came from the Bridging the Gap (BTG) transportation levy, passed by voters in November 2006.
What’s the timeline from start to finish?
The NSF program will have three 3 year cycles to select, design, and build projects. The schedule for the first of these cycles is as follows:
